Like nude, lace has an elderly connotation. Alas, designer Miuccia Prada hated the fabric, so she decided to take on the big challenge of forming her entire Fall collection out of it. Genius. And let me assure you, this isn't your grandma's lace.
A brilliant start is incorporating lace into your wardrobe via legwear, like these Fogal Lace Tights ($47). Imagine what a welcome change they could provide to an entirely black ensemble. But don't stop at tights, embrace lace all over. Tops, dresses, skirts, shoes — the lacier the better!
